Summary:
A consortium of a Swiss research institute together with partners from EU countries looks for a coordinator from a technical university or university of applied sciences with excellent expertise in EU research project administration and interest in e-government, smart cities for a Horizon Europe call. The aim is to support smart cities in their digital transformation by applying explainable artificial intelligence technology and data science in a more secure, plannable and predictable way.
Description:
What
Today, cities in Europe and around the world are outdated and striving for digitalization. The COVID19 pandemic has exacerbated and accelerated the need for smarter, digitally oriented cities. Cities provide many information services online and thereby try to become smart cities. On average half the used online information is not understood or used by citizens, which leaves potential for improvement. As cities provide their services and information mainly for their citizens, becoming a smart city offers an opportunity to incorporate new technologies (machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI)), but also creating content which citizens understand and demand, with measurable digital impact. AI applications often lack transparency because of the black box problem. It is therefore important to decrypt the black box and shine a light on the AI process, also with respect to data security and privacy issues.

In fact, many cities often get a solution they don´t understand or choose to attack digitalization half-heartedly. A mechanism to evaluate the changes made to the internet presence of cities that claim to be smart cities can help guide European cities to become really smart cities. By proactive impact measurements and prototyping the internet presence of a city, the risk of unnecessary investments can be minimized and the process of relaunch can be speeded up.

This project aims to provide an excellent solution and a systematic approach for cities to become user-centric, smart cities. It provides a safe and secure way of implementing explainable AI technology and user-centricity.

How
This project aims to approach the process of supporting smart cities in their digital transformation by applying explainable AI technology and data science in a more secure, more plannable and more predictable way. This process is illustrated in figure 1:
· Digital market research, topic mapping and Experts in AI technology measure the existing data and internet presence of cities and the implemented AI applications are decrypted in order to assess data security and privacy aspects and technical execution.
· The Swiss research institute delivers digital impact key performance indicators on all the captured data by means of the innovative Find-Engine which measures active search volume on 14´103 digital channels worldwide (search engines, social media, e-shops).
· Before building the new internet presence of a city, a prototype of the smart city presence is created involving all stakeholders using measurement data available to assure data security and privacy as well as user-centricity and digital impact whilst also focusing on e-democracy and e-participation.
· The resulting mockup is consolidated with the measured data and a data based strategy and specification is worked out.
· The realization partner builds the planned app, site, PWA, shop, etc.
· The execution is evaluated with respect to smart city measures such as user-centricity, digital impact, data security, privacy and usage of AI technology using blockchain technology.

To maximise the scope of the project it is planned to run pilots across small, medium and large sized cities. This will allow for the assessment of various factors that will differ according to city size and demographics.

The existing consortium partners are:
· AI Experts (Malta)
· topic mapping (Germany)
· impact KPI´s (Switzerland)
· prototyping and simulation (Spain)
· realization (Austria)
· blockchain (Germany)

The consortium only lacks the coordinator.
